The 4 Stages of Technology Integration in Education Back again to the topic of technology integration Vs using technology in education. If you still remember, last week Educational Technology and Mobile Learning published two posts on the difference between these two concepts and we argued that technology integration is what is asked from teachers and not just using technology .

Social Media Sites as Talent Incubators The line that may have defined the ‘80’s culturally – “I want my MTV” – was Sting’s vocal contribution to Dire Straits’ “Money for Nothing,” the band’s most successful single from their cart-topping “Brothers in Arms” album.

Building the Culture of an Empowered Mindset Towards Technology Innovation I have been having an incredible year of learning in my half-time role with Parkland School Division, along with speaking and consulting for other schools/districts. I have learned a lot from both positions and I feel that it is very valuable to be able to look at school cultures within your organization, while also looking at what other schools do from an outsider’s perspective. In this work, I have realized how truly important the role of principal is in building, not only in creating a positive culture, but an innovative one. These schools continuously strive to understand the changes happening in our world to not only catch up, but to lead the way in providing amazing learning opportunities for our students.
